Due to an increase in production, we are seeking mushroom pickers for this fantastic opportunity located in Murrumbateman NSW, 25 minutes from Canberra.

Mushroom picking can be labour intensive and repetitive. They are grown indoors in a comfortable environment (around 18degC). We require fast, healthy, fit individuals with an excellent attitude towards work and good attention to detail. Previous farm work or picking experience will be highly regarded.
Working hours are dependent on mushrooms, and can sometimes be long if there is a lot to pick. Work starts at 5am, normally 6 days per week, but can be 7 days.
